The Auld Year - The New Year

Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 27th of December, 2012,
to the main melody of 'The Barony Waltz'.

This Auld Year an' maist afore it
We've jined in Hogmanay,
Sae we're pairtyin' an' doonin' drams
Sangin' the oors away;
The midnicht chimes are soondin' noo
Sae we maun git on oor way,
An' ging feerst-fit freens an' kin
In thur hames on this New Year's Day.

"Guid New Year an' mony o'-them
We weesh tae aabody;
Tak guid tent yersels bit ithers tee
Wycely an' hertily;
Canty days an' plenty o'-them
We howp fur ain an' aa;
Bit thase nae guid, fan they faa
We prig seen wull ging fest awa."
